Out of my hands

This classical thing is getting out of hand. I started writing the faster string piece as mentioned in the previous blog entry. It turned out to be a string trio. I wrote slightly more than two minutes of it when I suddenly remembered an older idea of writing a suite for string quartet and mezzo-soprano. So that's what I'm currently working on. Loads of ideas are being poured on paper whenever I have time for it. The work will be in 3 movements, and I have the text already here. I didn't write that myself, which is good :)  More news as this thing develops.

More string things

I finished the first piece for a string quartet. It is a suite in 3 parts (entitled I - Valitus, II - Leikki, III - Loppu). Total duration is approximately 14 minutes. I hope to hear it played by real musicians some day. Pretty melancholy and slow music, but also very melodic at times.

Encouraged, I started another piece for string quartet which is faster and perhaps more playful. We'll see...

Strings attached

At the moment there's not much recording going on as I'm currently writing music for string quartet. It remains to be seen for how long this period lasts. There's one 6 minute piece finished at the moment, and the next part is already more than 3 minutes in duration. Should this composition ever be finished, I really hope I get the chance to hear it played by a real quartet. If I get that chance, so will you!

More coffee

Hey there!

The prog rock song mentioned last December is finished and all that, but it won't be published. It has some nice moments in it, but also some which are not that good, so....

Anyway there's some more new fresh fusion stuff for you to listen. I call this "Bad coffee" and it goes like THIS.

Coast to coast

Here's a little video I shot today. It's a tune by Europe (!). It's something I listened a lot to when in my adolescence. I always loved Kee Marcello's playing so this might be a little homage to him and his style of playing. It's 80's, what can I say...

Questionable progression

Currently I'm in the process of writing and recording a progrock song that has a zillion parts in it. It currently clocks at 9'30" something and it looks like there's no end in sight. It already has some vocal parts in it too, but whether or not it will be released depends mostly on how the rest of the vocals turn out :)

Matter of conscience

Hey there!

Here's a fresh fusion piece entitled Mechanical conscience. It's basically in 5/4 time, except for the solos. Hope you like it.
